Detroit sailors having some fun in Naptown!

J/80 Kopp-Out at Annapolis NOOD (Annapolis, MD)-  According to J/34 IOR owner of KNEE DEEP, Brett Langolf, “a group of us sailors from Detroit represented Bayview Yacht Club at the Annapolis NOODs. We competed in the competitive 23-boat J/80 Fleet on the boat KOPP-OUT. The group of four had never sailed together, but knew each other from their hometown (Port Huron) and college (Michigan State). This was the owner/skipper’s (Tom Kopp) second regatta and, amazingly, our team took 2nd Place, one 1 point out of 1st after 8 races (3 days)!! We lost out to some local Pro’s that know the Bay waters well. They also led the fleet with three 1st place finishes throughout the weekend. Kudos to our crew- CJ Ruffing, Steve Young, and Tom Kopp!  We had a blast!” Add to Flipboard Magazine.
